Afflecks, 52 Church Street, Manchester, M4 1PW – Visit Now

Afflecks Palace is legendary in Manchester, and for good reason. This towering indie emporium kick-started the careers of many a local entrepreneur, from Red or Dead founder Wayne Hemingway to Urban Splash head honcho Tom Bloxham. Today the former department store contains dozens of vintage and fashion stalls, selling everything from military garb and goth-ware to tea dresses. There are also dedicated bead, condom and ‘zine shops, and this is THE place to come for fancy dress. The place teems with teenagers but don’t let that put you off – head purposefully for the cafe near the top.
